Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) are a group of potentially disabling congenital conditions that occur due to alcohol consumption by the mother during pregnancy, with fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS being the most severe among them [1].
Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is the principal cause responsible for this disorder in newborn infants. When you drink alcohol during pregnancy, it reaches the developing fetus, crossing the placenta through your bloodstream [4]. According to a research performed on primates, newborns carrying a specific gene variant are believed to be more likely to develop the symptoms of FAS [7].
Being one of the most common causes of congenital mental retardation [14], it is also characterized by a wide range of physical, mental and behavioral symptoms.
Diagnosis after birth includes a thorough physical examination to look for characteristic symptoms such as heart murmur and other cardiac defects [25]. The facial and other physical signs present in babies born with FAS help with the detection at the early stage. Genetic testing may be necessary to rule out any hereditary condition with similar symptoms [24].
Possible environmental causes (abuse, neglect etc.) responsible for the CNS abnormalities should also be considered in the differential diagnosis [30].
Despite being an incurable disorder, the quality of life of the patients may be improved by proper management that generally continues throughout their lives [5]. Children with FAS should be provided with a stable routine to follow at home as they are often highly sensitive to disorders and disruptions in their daily routine.
First of all, I’m no doctor, so what you are going to read about in this guide is not medical advice, this is what has worked for me and may work for you too! What you are going to read about in this guide has truly made a positive impact on my life, it stopped an extremely annoying itchy scalp feeling and my hair loss altogether, and I’m sure it will do the same for you too. Two years ago, I was living a perfect life, happily married with two children and having a great job and absolutely magnificent hair, however one Saturday morning after waking up, I started feeling an extreme itchy sensation in my scalp, it was violent and I just couldn’t concentrate on my work or be in the mood for anything! It was a strange experience, sometimes it would be so violent and other times it would be so quiet and so calm, this is what was driving me crazy!
It was then that I decided to look for a real solution to get rid of the my itchy scalp and hair loss. Thanks to God and to my research, I have found some amazing techniques and very simple methods to stop my itchy scalp and hair loss completely and to resume living my life to the fullest.
Here, you are going to learn about the most common causes of your itchy scalp and hair loss. It’s primarily caused by harsh chemicals you use to wash your hair, an aggressive shampoo or conditioner, and can sometimes be due to a bacterial infection. Symptoms vary from whitehead pimples appearing around your hair follicles to painful red spots in your scalp.
Folliculitis is a major cause of itchy scalp and hair loss, and if untreated it can result in cicatricial alopecia, bald and very itchy spots in your head! There are many antibiotics that can treat folliculitis, however overtreatment of folliculitis with these can create resistance, and make the antibiotics useless with time, that is why it’s preferable to use only natural antibiotics such as garlic oil, tea tree oil, ginger oil or lavender oil to treat folliculitis in its early stages. Seborrheic Dermatitis is a very dangerous inflammatory reaction caused by a yeast called Pityrosporum Ovale. This yeast is responsible for producing toxins that are very damaging to the scalp, seborrheic dermatitis is mainly caused by an imbalance in the production of the sebum, and will result in bald spots in your scalp accompanied with violent itchiness. Seborrheic Dermatitis is usually caused by a change in your shampoo or conditioner, this change is going to result in the lowering of sebum in your scalp which in turn will make Pityrosporum Ovale attack the scalp and cause the itchiness and hair loss. One of the best treatments of Seborrheic Dermatitis is to stop washing your hair with shampoo and stop using conditioners for about two weeks. It’s highly advisable to start eating more iron rich foods such as beans, dark green leafy vegetables, and nuts, and also consult your doctor to start supplementing if necessary. Demodex mites, like in dogs, can cause skin irritations and also hair loss, if you think you have them, the best thing to do is to consult with your doctor as they can be very difficult to get rid of. Tinea Capitis, also known as the ringworm of the scalp, is a fungal infection of the scalp caused by a mold called dermatophytes.
Symptoms are: inflamed and highly, itchy irritated scalp usually accompanied with hair loss. This is a very serious condition that can lead to skin peeling, swollen blisters and even rash that can spread to the rest of your body! There are many folk remedies for the ringworm of the scalp, however they cannot be trusted because Tinea Capitis is a highly aggressive and dangerous disease. The best way to make sure is to consult your doctor, you can also start applying garlic oil and see whether the itchy scalp feeling and hair loss will disappear or not.
The best way to stop itchy scalp and hair loss caused by psoriasis is to use a zinc Pyrithione rich shampoo.
Of course there are some home remedies to relieve the pain, the best ones are birch oil and avocado oil, they are perfect for relieving the pain and curing psoriasis very quickly and naturally. This is probably what you are suffering from if there are no blisters or redness in your scalp. DHT is simply a byproduct of the conversion of testosterone by enzymes in your scalp, high levels of DHT will certainly cause hair loss in most people, but sometimes the hair loss is going to be accompanied with an itchy sensation too. DHT is going to influence the production of hair, this is going to stress the hair follicles and ultimately cause an itchy sensation in your scalp.
Most doctors will never suspect high DHT levels because it does not make the skin red or cause blisters, but this is a real problem and most men suffering from itchy scalp and hair loss will notice huge relief when they start taking DHT lowering substances like finasteride within one month.
Now, let’s talk about some of the most effective natural remedies to help you with your itchy scalp and hair loss.
It’s very high in antioxidants and also very rich in anti-inflammatory compounds that are going to lower inflammations quickly in your scalp.
Alcohols are very aggressive when applyed to the skin, they are going to dry it and make it irritated. One of the best ways in my opinion to see what is causing your itchy scalp and hair loss is to stop using shampoo or any other hair products for at least two weeks. If within this period your hair started growing normally and the itchiness disappeared, then it was probably related to the alcohols in the hair products you were using.
Caffeine intake can also increase the itchy sensation in your scalp, and no, drinking coffee is not the real problem, most drinks and even some baked products nowadays contain very high amounts of caffeine. A great way to see if caffeine is the cause of your itchy scalp and hair loss is to stop drinking coffee, tea, carbonated beverages and even industrially made juices. Again, this is going to sound counterintuitive, however washing your hair is only going to get rid of the good oils in your scalp that are protecting it and making the hair follicles work normaly. I know some people who would wash their hair every morning; this is extremely hurtful to the scalp and hair follicles. When I started doing this, my hair started growing stronger and healthier and my scalp stopped feeling itchy. If you need more explaining or if you have a question, please post it in a comment and please feel free to share any additional advice or techniques you feel arenecessary for getting rid of the itchy scalp and hair loss. This is such a helpful post, I will bookmark it and continue reading it later, but for now, I must thank you because I I’m sure of what\s going wrong with my scalp, the last months have been terrible for me, I was so stressed out and my diet was terrible, I think I’ve developed candida!

Swimmer's Ear, medically known as Otitis Externa or Acute External Otitis, can be described as a bacterial infection that occurs in the outer ear canal.
The infection is likely to occur after swimming, as water that remains in your ears creates a moist environment, ideal for bacterial growth. Swimmer's ear is not a serious infection and can be treated quite easily with the right medication. Therefore, though swimmer's ear is not a serious health problem, it should be treated by a doctor as soon as it occurs.

Hot Garlic Oil: Pour some olive oil in a bowl and soak a few pieces of grated garlic in it. Vinegar: Mix a few drops of white vinegar with water and pour a few drops of the solution into each ear, with the help of a dropper.
Mineral Oil: Applying a small amount of mineral oil on the ears before a swim can help prevent bacterial infections to a great extent. While these natural remedies can help alleviate the symptoms of otitis externa, they do not cure the infection and therefore cannot be used as a substitute for medical treatment.
There is no specific diet that you need to follow while undergoing treatment for swimmer's ear.
However, a diet that is high in vitamins, minerals, protein and other essential nutrients makes it easier for your body to fight off infection causing bacteria.
Vitamin C helps your body combat bacterial infections and therefore, you should increase your consumption of oranges, lemons, strawberries, papayas, kiwis, guavas, tomatoes, bell peppers (yellow), leafy greens, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and certain fresh herbs.

Certain drugs -- most notably aspirin, several types of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, sedatives, and antidepressants, as well as quinine medications; tinnitus is cited as a potential side effect for about 200 prescription and nonprescription drugs.

Labyrinthitus, an infection of the inner ear, may lead to dizziness and hinder a person's overall sense of balance.
Antibiotic ear drops are often prescribed for an outer ear infection like swimmer's ear, which can progress to an inner ear infection. Also known as labyrinthitis, an inner ear infection is a condition in which the sufferer experiences difficulties with maintaining proper balance.
Along with bacterial infections or viruses, allergies may also trigger inflammation in the inner ear. The exact form of treatment for an inner ear infection will depend on the origin of the infection itself and the various symptoms and side effects that appear. While it is possible for the body to eventually overcome an infection in the inner ear, damage can be done that allows various symptoms to linger for weeks or even years.

I wash my hair before I use the vinegar and then condition only my hair (not the roots)(I have very long hair).

Injury damage or pressure changesTrauma to the head can impact the ear and cause permament hearing loss. I cut my hair very short, slathered calamine lotion all over my oozing scalp sores and put gloves on my hands to keep me from picking and scratching. Sudden pressure changes, like scuba diving or flying, can also harm the eardrum, middle ear or inner ear. While eardrums may take a few weeks to get better, serious inner ear damage may require an operation. By the end of the weekend, the sores were almost completely gone and I saw hair starting to grow again. These are called ototoxic drugs, which may cause damage to the inner ear, resulting in hearing loss, balance problems and tinnitus.
Antibiotics linked to possible permanant hearing loss include: gentamicin, streptomycin and neomycin. Chronic diseaseSome chronic diseases that are not directly linked to ear issues may trigger hearing loss. Some types of hearing loss are also linked to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. How you hear – anatomy of the earSound causes the eardrum and its tiny attached bones in the middle part of the ear to vibrate.
The spiral-shaped cochlea in the inner ear transforms sound into nerve impulses that travel to the brain. The fluid-filled semicircular canals attach to the cochlea and nerves in the inner ear and send information on balance and head position to the brain.
Growths and tumoursHearing loss can be caused by benign, non-cancerous growths, such as osteomas, exostoses or polyps that block the ear canal.
A large neuroma can cause headaches, facial pain or numbness, lack of limb coordination and tinnitus.
Loud bangs!Remember, remember the 5th of November – but also remember to take care of your ears on Bonfire Night! Exposure to loud noise over 85 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss and while fireworks are lovely to watch, some can break that sound limit with a searing 155 decibels. Gunshots and other explosive noises also pack a punch to your ear, in some cases rupturing eardrums or causing damage to the inner ear. Loud concerts and tinnitusThat loud buzzing sound in the ears after a loud concert is called tinnitus. The average rock concert exposes you to sound as loud as 110 decibles which can do permamant damage after just 15 minutes. Other noises that break the 85 decibel range and risk permanent hearing loss include power tools, chain saws and leaf blowers.
Prevent tinnitus and potential hearing loss, which can last days, months or years by using earplugs and limiting noise exposure. Personal music playersIf other people can hear the music you're listening to through your earphones, you may be at risk of permanent hearing loss. A recent survey revealed that over 92% of young people listen to music on a personal player or mobile phone. Recent EU standards limited the sound on these devices to 85 decibels, but many listeners plan to override the new default volume – saying they want to wipe out background noise.
Action for Hearing Loss suggests using noise-cancelling headphones rather than pressing override and risking lifelong damage to your hearing. EarwaxIt may be yucky and unsightly but earwax does serve a useful purpose, protecting the ear canal from dirt and bacteria.
However, if earwax builds up and hardens, it can dull your hearing and give you an earache. If you feel your ears are clogged, see your GP or nurse who may suggest olive oil drops to soften and disperse the wax. Don't be tempted to do it yourself with a cotton bud – or any other implement - which only risks damage to the ear. Childhood illnessChildren are susceptible to ear infections, which are among many childhood illnesses that can cause hearing loss. Usually, infections that fill the middle ear with fluid cause only temporary hearing loss but some may cause harm to the middle or inner ear and lead to permanent hearing loss. Illnesses linked to hearing loss in children include chickenpox, influenza, measles, meningitis, encephalitis and mumps. Born with hearing lossIn the UK, one or two babies in every thousand are born with significant hearing loss. Although congenital hearing loss often runs in families, it can also be triggered by an infection in the mother during pregnancy. Hearing loss can also develop after lack of oxygen or trauma at birth, or if a newborn is premature. AgeRegardless of how you protect your ears, getting older reduces your hearing as you gradually lose inner ear hair cells. If you are struggling to hear and it is affecting your quality of life, go to your GP or NHS clinic to arrange a hearing test.
